The performance is the outcome of joint work by blind, partially sighted, physically handicapped and unhindered dancers. It is an artistic inquiry and research in disability and art without being emotionally caught in pity or sympathy. It is a powerful performance which shows the infinite possibilities that arise from the limitations and freedom of the human body and spirit.

"In the course of the rehearsals, the choreography developed out of the specialties
and abilities of the actors, as well as the situations and improvisations created
during the rehearsals. I had often thought about the aesthetics of the disabled body
and how it could be expressive on an artistic level and now I'm going through it
again. My aim is to raise the human body to a level above the differences between
them, and present the humorous and grotesque side of this as well." 
Yvette Bozsik
